Retailer removes shirt that resembles Holocaust uniform

Stripped pattern, six-pointed yellow star draws controversy


A Spanish clothing retailer came under fire after several people complained that one of its shirts resembled the prison uniforms Jewish concentration camp prisoners were forced to wear during the Holocaust.

Zara pulled the children's shirt that featured navy blue and white horizontal stripes with a six-pointed yellow star on the upper left embossed with the word "sheriff," reported the International Business Times.

Holocaust victims were once mandated to wear vertical striped shirts and pants with a yellow Star of David in the same position seen on Zara's shirt.

Zara apologized in a statement for promoting the shirt and has since removed it from its website.
